early this morning with the first lady, daughters malia and sasha, and the family of vice president biden. they came to a 50-minute prayer service. attended also by about 600 members of the parish and congregation. they also got some news when they heard that their reverend will be giving the benediction. the previous one had withdrawn after he gave an anti-gay sermon 20 years ago. he began today worshipping at the church known as the church of presidents. >> wyatt, thank you very much. >>> also at the white house today, david axelrod is joining us this morning. the former city hall bureau chief of "the chicago tribune," but perhaps better known to everyone these days as the chief strategist and architect of the president's victory in 2008 and his most recent re-election as well. david, thank you very much for joining us this morning. >> great to be with you, scott. >> as we noted earlier, the unemployment rate on inauguration day in 2009 was 7.8 and it's 7.8% today. the president has a lot of work cut out for him. what do you think we will see from the president with regard to the
though -- >> a bridge that could use some repair, by the way. >> as we see sasha and malia obama coming down and the rest of the obamas presumably not far behind. the president will be introduced here shortly to the podium. sasha and malia i believe it was sasha who said nice job yesterday, dad, and he said i didn't mess it up this time. a reference to the fact that he had to repeat the oath four years ago. >> i was just going to say though, i think there's some other things that are more subtle that the president and his administration can do. just to continue to move beyond the policy overlay, the policy concerns that have been a bit of be a an override, created an adverse environment on the dodd frank act. i think we're in the process of moving beyond those concerns and that could be really, really helpful. >> jared, is there a realistic prospect for something that could respectably be called tax reform or is that simply an exercise to raise a little bit more revenue? >> more of the latter than the former in my humble opinion. it's great they're all getting along today as hampton was
from their daughters sasha and malia, who appear to be riding in this motorcade along with their grandmother, marion robinson, who is the mother, of course, of michelle obama, wolf. >> brianna, stand by for a moment. i want to keep these pictures up if we can, also pictures from the capitol. we are here on the united states capitol. we're awaiting the arrival of the president. should be coming up soon. kate balduan is here, david gergen is here. the day is enormous. whether you're a democrat or republican, you feel it from where we are. >> you sure do. it's a gorgeous day. it's brisk, but it's not freezing. the sun is gleaming on the capitol. you have these throngs of people. you can look all the way down the mall and see them. it's not as big as last time, but when you compare it to other inaugurations of other presidents, this is still a massive inauguration. there's a feeling in the air, once you get past security, people are just happy to be here. they have a sense this is history. they want to put aside the fights of the moment. >> at least today. >> at least toda
the first mother-in-law walk through the marion robertson, ma leaand sasha obama. ma leais 14 and sasha is 11. they are dressed head to toe in jay crew. >> thank you for the fashion. >> i will be keeping up with the fashion all day. >> what do you look to in the past when you look at a second inaugural? >> i think it's another affirmation of the american system, have people out on the mall, see the president and the transfer of power and that's the glory of american system and that's what george washington brought, the first person to give up power, no one thought he was going to do it. even though it's a ceremony but it's a ceremony that is -- it bring's lot to our country and to our nation. >> is it one of those ceremonies, do you agree with beverly and richard that the second time in many respects, speaks more to what people's expectations are of their president than the first time. >> there's been an affirmation of what braun did by a majority of american people. and it turns out, a bigger majority than people thought. many people thought he wasn't going to win at all so this is, i
. neil: we are just getting a shot at sasha and melia, the president's daughters. they have grown in the last four years. and his mother in law. this is the first president in more than a generation who has his mother-in-law living at the white house. good or bad, he has his mother-in-law living at the white house. that should be, at some levels, admired. it is what it is. she is very instrumental in raising the girls and keeping them grounded. the major folks are in place. the remaining members of the president's family, including his daughter and mother in law will establish their seats. these girls will be 15 and 18 years old for years from now. they will have spent a majority of their formative years in the white house. they have grown to be remarkable young ladies and under the duress and the pressure in the public eye, they have certainly been a credit to this president. peter barnes, i am wondering, as these kids taken their dad and the overtures that he will make to lead this nation and united, it is a very different tone now than it was four years ago. peter: that is righ
the oath, and i thought that was interesting. here come the daughters, sasha and malia. looking spectacular in their coats. >> yesterday his youngesty his t daughter said daddy, you did not mess up. [laughter] >> the president obama started the morning with a little prayer service, interface from all kinds of spiritual leaders, reverend lyons sat down with chris wallace in recent days and gave a little bit of a sermon and talked about how in recent days he thinks the president has been almost pastor in chief dealing with tragedies such as the one in newtown, connecticut. trying to bring communities together their and president has an opportunity today to try to bring the country together. there will be a luncheon with congressional leaders after the swearing in his. you will see that giant stand behind me that has bulletproof glass, the president and first lady will review the parade. we are told that the president attended school there, play basketball, it was interesting to note that in 1953 by president eisenhower had a cowboy along the parade, came over and through a lasso around presid
of inauguration 2013. you're seeing the president's daughters, sasha and malia as well as mrs. obama's mother take the stage. for many people, when the mother-in-law of the president actually moved into the white house, it seemed like the perfect moment for a sitcom. that never happened. but the president's daughters now we've watched them grow up in the white house under four years under the scrutiny of the public eye. i think sasha had the greatest moment of the entire campaign yesterday when after he took the oath of office, she could be audibly heard congratulating her daddy for not messing up. >> jennifer: you know what's ironic about that. i was of watching another program this morning. they were offended that the president after he was done said to his daughter, i did it. as though i did it. i got elected instead of i got through this without messing up. because -- >> jennifer: exactly. it wasn't a we built this moment but famously, four years ago, the president made some -- omitted some words in the oath of office which is why john roberts had to give him the oath of office again the next
, and the president, sasha and malia, and the first lady's mom. luis leon is preaching on the theme of unity, which is also the president's theme. we'll see the president and first lady when they come out of that service, in just a little bit. first, let's talk to david muir. he's on the shadow of the steps of the capitol. and a lot of people gathering already. >> gathering here since the darkdar darkened hours before the sun came up. you talked about the choir of p.s. 22. you can see the capitol behind me, for those of you watching at home. the archway that the president will emerge from, about midway, at 11:30 this morning. his hand on the two bibles that george mentioned. applause for the children who traveled here all the way from new york. my producer, christine has the temperature on her weather app. for the second inaugural, everyone wanted to know, is it going to be the 29 degrees they witnessed four years ago and those winds. it's 39 degrees right now. it's going to be heading up to 45 degrees here. and look at the sky over washington this morning. a beautiful, beautiful blue sky. they're
saw the presidential daughters, malia and sasha obama making their way to the inaugural platform area proceeding their grandmother, of course. i will say, just on human terms, seeing them talking to each other and talking to each other and sharing a joke and laughing and being together throughout that entire long walk down to the very public spot, that makes me happy. >> the other thing that makes me happy, originally, is you are going through the rundown of the day, if you look at the people represented in that moment, the widow of medgar evers, sonia sotomayor, the first woman of color on the supreme court there to swear in joe biden, and then to see the daughters, two african-american first daughters, maybe i'm a little emotional because i have a nearly 11-year-old daughter, but there is something about that intergenerational perspective of women of color to be in this moment when we know the history of both women and people of color in this country that i find extraordinary about the kind of intersections that this presidency makes possible. >> this is a rare camera shot. we don't
accounts, sasha and malia are having that experience, too. it's something that mrs. obama has talked about recently. i think i read a quote she said she's pleasantly surprised at how normal they are. so much so that the president notes they're not that interested in hanging out with him any more. this is a family enterprise. it's not the normal job where the parents and the children aren't connected through this. they have to go through this political experience. it's an incredibly intense spotlight. but by all accounts, these girls are flourishing. >> and i think about all of our friends coming in from texas and yale and sharing it with friends and i'm sure that's what the obama girls will do, too. so it becomes part of your life, part of what you would do, anyway, except for more people don't have a father that is the president. >> and there's a great humbling part of this, too. i'm sure you made fun of your dad. when the obama girls said you did it, no mistakes. they're waiting to make fun of him. >> and he let that moment pass without a hook em horns, so well done. >> we'll take a brea
. this is the president, a first lady, and sasha and malia being -- while the president was sworn in yesterday. by the way, president obama is only the 17th president to have to go inaugurals in our history. he is the 44 president, but the 17th to have to go in all girls. the others include george w. bush, bill clinton, ronald reagan, richard nixon, to eisenhower, fdr, woodrow wilson, william mckinley, ulysses s. grant, abraham lincoln, anger jackson, james monroe, james madison, thomas jefferson, and george washington. down on the national mall where the crowds are gathering, we have a reporter in the middle of everything. >> right from a capital, in the middle of the national mall, three ladies with us and make the journey to this and operation. >> i am gloria, from seattle. >> michelle, new york. >> marion, pennsylvania. >> you decided to meet here. >> we are all three sisters. >> why did you decide to come to washington for the 57 and operation? >> i think we regretted not being here quarter years ago. we decided we would not miss it this time around. >> we never thought about it or we did not think i
